How Does Georgia Law Handle Property Division?

Every state handles the matter of property division a little differently. Because Georgia is considered an equitable distribution state, any property that was accrued during the course of your marriage will be classified as “marital property” and split evenly between the two parties. Any items that you had prior to marriage will be categorized as “separate property,” and you will most likely be able to keep it.

Although this may sound straightforward in theory, however, it’s anything but straightforward in practice. “Equitable” distribution does not always mean a fifty-fifty split, and will instead be decided based on a number of factors – and unlike in states with community property laws, the Georgia courts retain complete discretion to split up your property based on these factors.

Here’s what the judge may consider when deciding on property distribution matters:

  • The state and value of your separate properties
  • The financial health and wellbeing of each spouse
  • The potential future needs of each spouse
  • Whether one or both parties have committed misconduct and wasted assets
  • How each spouse has acted throughout the divorce
